Almost 20 gardens were expected to participate in the June 10th for the 2023 Annual Bayfield Garden Tour. It is a self-guided walking tour with homeowners on hand to answer questions. The annual festival ends with the traditional Blessing of the Fleet celebration in the first or second week of June (in 2023, it is June 4th).

Bayfield Garden Tour

We caught some nice weather during one Memorial Day weekend in Bayfield with a number of trees and flowers still in bloom. The Bayfield in Bloom Festival normally runs from mid-May to mid-June.

Here's a few photos from our walking around town looking at various gardens and flowering trees and shrubs.

Behind this apple tree is an old apple cellar used by one of the early apple orchards to store their crop after picking. It is near the Iron Bridge Hiking Trail and creek.
